NorZinc provides update on 2020 surface drill program and rights offering

17 November 2020

NorZinc Ltd. is pleased to provide a progress update on its Silver-focussed surface exploration program currently underway at its Prairie Creek Mine Site, as well as the Company’s Rights Offering (“RO”) that will be expiring on November 18, 2020.
2020 Surface Exploration Program 
The purpose of the surface drill program is to confirm the presence of additional Main Quartz Vein (“MQV”) and Stockwork-style (“STK”) material and to test grades adjacent to the previously drilled PCU-15-72, which returned the following notable intercepts:
•a vein intercept of 7.5m true width of 247 g/t Ag (7.2 oz/ton), 33.7% Zn, 17.8%; and,
•a stockwork intercept of 3.7m true width of 257g/t Ag (7.5oz/ton), 29.3% Zn and 18.7% Pb[1].
PCU-15-72 was drilled near the northern edge of the current Measured & Indicated Mineral Resource, and the deposit remains open for additional definition drilling to the north.  Previous drilling from this area has helped define the existing Inferred Mineral Resource, which extends for another 1,000m along strike from hole PCU-15-72.  It is in this area where the current drill program is targeting (Figure 1).
